Every Wednesday ALLi will tell the world about our members' latest book launches, news, awards, freebies, workshops and updates on the writing life and take a look at the projects and businesses of our partner members.
My debut novel: Aegis: Catalyst Grove has launched on all major ebook platforms on August 18th.
In an effort to control his unexplainable power and protect those around him, Graham goes in search for a man who may hold the answers he needs. It isn’t until he wakes up tied to a chair with a black hood over his head that he wishes he could take it all back. Why was he taken captive? How do they also have supernatural powers and what do they want with him? Who is this group called Aegis?
Find the book on: Smashwords
My first novel, Mind of the Beast is now available on Amazon's Kindle. I had such a great time co-authoring this second book in the Sundancer series with my husband, Brian. It's fun discussing Voodoo, mythological gods and vampires while grocery shopping.
When a vampire asks Nick St. James to investigate his friend’s murder, the answer should have been easy, right? NO. Okay, not so easy. How do you say no to a friend like Felix?
Besides, with Thelma by his side, what could go wrong? She’s tough, witty and beautiful, even when possessed by a drunken loa.
But, no good deed goes unpunished. A man with starry eyes jumps out of the shadows at the victim’s apartment and infects them with some bad mojo that’s killing Thelma and making Nick angry … well, angrier.
If the trail to the suspect—the Green Man—is any indication, they’ll be killed before the poison finishes the job. The old gods are more dangerous than helpful. The Watchers are always a hazard. And what’s with all the minions? Who has minions anymore? Not to mention the infection that quickly upgrades Nick’s condition to ‘blind-rage-filled.’
Why couldn’t Felix have just asked Nick to help him move?”
These Fragile Things has received accreditation from Awesome Indies
After reading Alison Morton's article on the positive benefits of from accreditation from Awesome Indies and B.R.A.G., I decided that I really should get my act in order, chase those reviewers from Awesome Indies to whom I had previously sent review copies, and pursue my applications.
I am delighted to confirm that the very nice people at Awesome Indies kindly agreed to accept evaluation reports previously received from Compulsion Reads. Although this was a ‘paid for' service, whilst it was still a considerable investment for me, it seems that Compulsion Reads were not charging enough to cover their costs. Last year, they were forced to close. Awesome Indies have now added them to their list of reviewers. I hope that this may benefit other ALLi members who find themselves in a similar position to me.
These Fragile Things has now been listed by Awesome Indies on their site.

I created this site with a simple mission: “nurture the storyteller” and “empower the small business author.” I believe that the mechanics and structure of writing can be taught, but the desire to tell a story must be nurtured. And because, by definition a self- publishing author becomes a small business owner, we want to help support those efforts however we can.
